The Capacity Building Program at Empire Health Foundation (EHF) would like you to be aware of its Grant Writer Assistance Fund. In today’s economic climate, funders are requesting that organizations collaborate on grant proposals in order to expand both the reach of the investment and its impact. EHF understands that relationship building, proposal development, and grant writing take time. Many organizations do not have a designated grant writer or do not have the flexible funds available to hire a professional grant writer.
In an effort to assist Inland Northwest organizations collaborate and improve health outcomes, while remaining competitive in attracting resources to Eastern Washington, EHF announces the availability of funds to utilize the services of professional grant writers. This announcement is open as long as funds are available through November 30, 2012.
In an attempt to increase capacity to the region, the guidelines are relatively simple. The proposal (whether currently released or to be released announcements) must include a collaborative effort of more than one organization. Additionally, the funding can be from either private foundations or federal opportunities and must relate to improved health outcomes, including more traditional health programs and/or socioeconomic factors of health. The funding source must come from outside the counties EHF serves: Adams, Ferry, Lincoln, Pend Oreille, Spokane, Stevens and Whitman.
Send an email to email@example.com that includes in the body of the email (no attachments please): the funding agency or organization, brief description of opportunity - including any links to an announcement if available, organization(s) collaborating, estimated amount of award, and due date of proposal. Also include if you have a grant writer you wish to work with, or would like us to utilize one of the consultants we have vetted.
Funding ranges are generally between $500 - $5000 depending on the length and complexity of the grant and the number of partners needed for the collaboration.

Empire Health Foundation is a new health conversion private foundation, with approximately $160 million in assets under management and stewardship of which $50 million is set aside for philanthropy, working to improve the health of communities in eastern Washington. Because it is the largest private health foundation in the region, it has given the organization a unique opportunity to build a philanthropic organization from the ground up, design and implement a strategic vision for impact, and establish the Foundation as a catalyst and convener in the region.
